Red-hot: Modern Family star Sofia Vergara shows off her curvy silhouette in Michael Cinco’s strapless black number at the 2013 Golden Globes.
MANILA, Philippines - Michael Cinco is red-hot â€” when it comes to the red carpet, at least.
Sofia Vergara sported the Dubai-based Filipino designerâ€™s dress to the 70th annual Golden Globes. The Modern Family star showed off her curvy silhouette in a strapless black number that hugged her waist and displayed her assets.
â€œMy friend told me that so many designers wanted to dress up Sofia Vergara,â€ Cinco tells The STAR, â€œbut luckily she chose my dress â€” because itâ€™s couture and crystallized.â€
It took over a hundred hours of beadwork and embroidery to complete the dress. Cinco says he was inspired by Hollywood glamour.
The Golden Globe nomineeâ€™s garb reportedly generated over 500 tweets a minute. â€œI think she loved it,â€ he says. â€œShe was happy with it.â€
Getting a dress on an awards show red carpet is serious business and often a last-minute one. Cinco, thanks to his LA connections (namely Style PR, a showroom that represents the designer in the US), was able to get Vergaraâ€™s attention. But is he worried about the critics who can be vicious when it comes to the red carpet?
â€œIâ€™m not worried. Iâ€™m just happy that one of my couture gowns graced the red carpet and was worn by a stunning Latina at the Golden Globes, so Iâ€™m not thinking about the critics at the moment.â€
This isnâ€™t Cincoâ€™s first time at the rodeo. His name was recently linked to Lady Gagaâ€™s.
The singer attended a Chicago Bulls charity dinner, with her boyfriend, Vampire Diariesâ€™ Taylor Kinney, sporting one of Cincoâ€™s crystal-encrusted dresses. Designed specifically for Gaga, the gown boasts a mesh top and sleeves with intricate beadwork.
The gown was originally fashioned for the performerâ€™s perfume launch in London last November. Cinco spent five days working on the ensemble, only to be informed it couldnâ€™t be used. â€œLady Gaga put on weight so the dress didnâ€™t fit her,â€ he says. â€œBut she liked it a lot so she kept it with her.â€
